Rays Claim Jake Goebbert from Pirates

By Jason Shetler

According to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, the Tampa Bay Rays have claimed Jake Goebbert off waivers from the Pirates. 

Goebbert signed with the Pirates back in November. He spent all of 2015 playing for El Paso, the San Diego Padres AAA club, posting a .392 on base percentage in 122 games. Because of the Pirates deep infield depth, Goebbert wasn’t likely to make the Opening Day roster. In order to clear space on the 40-man roster, the Pirates decided to designate Goebbert for assignment a few days ago.
